Hi guys, since the WC will begin in just a few weeks I started this thread to talk about anything concerning this WC. So what are your expectations? Personaly I think that Holland won't have a good WC. I also think that Brazil won't meet the expectations and perhaps Germany will be World Champion

Another humilliation for Brazil... The arrogance is paid.

I have to say, I always liked Brazil as NT (not like Germany, or Italy but well...) although this WC, with their arrogance, I'm glad about lasts matches for that National team...

Really, if Argentina beat Germany, then God has left football's world to feed by itself. There's nothing worse than that atrocity in history aside from Spain became the champions with the fewest goals made ever...

So, for the common sense Germany is the ambassador of the beautiful game now ? Just like Barça some time before ?

I'm neither for Germany nor Argentina but what I read here and there in the press/from the people since that 7-1 kinda makes me sick, did people forgot how was Germany-Algeria or Ghana-Germany ?
The press is poising people's mind to sell more and create the buzz with a "pensée unique", but there's no such thing in sports.

The one that will win it will make a great winner, so be it. In 50 years no one will give a fuck if it was a beautiful winner or an ugly winner, just the win will matter, that's how things are.

Well, i also think that Germany's also played some of very ugly games in this tournament, but they won the tournament is still better than Argentina instead since they showed good teamwork in most of the game, unlike Argentina where they're by far the luckiest World Cup finalist i've ever know.
But it doesn't matter, anyway. What i know is that this World Cup became an ugly sport post the group stage, and i'm glad that this tournament showed my father that football didn't became better than 20 years ago, but became worse and worse instead...

It has always been like that, if you ask me.

Not in 1998 World Cup (for Brazil's route till semi, at least) and plenty of other examples that i can't call right now.

He just needs to come on the pitch and he immediately gets all the awards..

He was the main reason why Argentina lost WC, invisible in knockout phase...


We can already put him on the list of 5 most overrated players in history...

I know there's a current fashion to overcriticize Messi these days but everything is not all black or all white.

Like Oswaldo Piazza said in a recent interview, without Messi Argentina wouldn't have passed the first round, end of the story. And it's not Messi who waisted all these oportunities when he made some good actions (as with Di Maria and Lavezzi, he was the ONLY one who could accelerate and make de difference from time to time), the likes of Higuain, Aguero, Palacio etc did absolutely nothing, leaving Messi being the only threat, most of the time surrounded by 3 or 4 guys, so now everyone expected him to create the opportunities, to assist and score?? Be realistic, even a hybrid of Di Stefano, Cruijff, Maradona and Pelé can't win by himself, he was absolutely ALONE after Di Maria's injury.

We all agree that Messi isn't Maradona, and that's not the point, we all agree he walks and doesn't do anything without the ball, and I bet there's things we don't know yet about his health with that weird tendency to disappear after one half and vomit on the pitch in almost every game. The guy (and that's for all the big club players) have played like a machine in the past 5 years without almost any rest, FIFA/UEFA and all National Federation are greedy bastards who are physically killing the players because there are too many games and competitions in a year. When people are complaining that there's no show and beautiful games in the last WCs, they have to think about how many games the players have played in a season before these international competitions. They are only humans not machines.

I'd add:

In 86 Maradona had Valdano and Burru + an iron defence.
In 2014 Messi had Di Maria for the half of the competition + an unexpected iron defence, that's not enough in modern football to win, had another offensive player stepped up in that team, the story might have been different. Maybe it's Sabella's responsibility to have chosen too much similar players for his team and left some others that could have been useful at home but it's done.
